"If I could only choose one book to lead me from garden to kitchen to make my own body care products, this would be the one. This book is a keeper!" --Marlene Adelmann, founder and director of The Herbal Academy
"This book is full of tested recipes and solid instructions. It has a little bit of everything. I love the practical tips for handling ingredients and safely storing your handmade products."

"Beautifully arranged and photographed! Jan has finally taken her wonderful recipes and gorgeous photography and created a dreamy handcrafter's guide. Her whimsical formulas combine play and purpose, making this a useful book to enjoy year-round."
--Holly Bellebuono, director The Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine and author of
The Essential Herbal for Natural Health and
The Healing Kitchen
"So many books provide recipes for the do-it-yourselfer to make at home, but few give you tips for how to craft your own recipes. I'm excited to make Jan's recipes, but over-the-moon about the idea that her readers will be encouraged to source simple ingredients from the backyard and get creative in the kitchen to make natural bodycare products at home!"
--Dawn Combs, author of
Heal Local and co-owner of Mockingbird Meadows

The deep connection she has with the plants she works is evident as she introduces you to their personalities and dreams up simple and creative ways to invite them into your home. 'Nerdy' doesn't quite describe this farm wife's enthusiasm for herbs--she's pure genius!"
--Rachael Brugger, managing editor at HobbyFarms.com and UrbanFarmOnline.com
